Opinion: PDP, APC must field an Igbo presidential candidate in 2023.

In 2007, the north dared Obasanjo and made it clear that power must return to the north after 8 years in the south. It was the pressure from the north that forced Obasanjo to drop Dr Peter Odili at the eleventh hour and Yaradua became the lucky northern candidate.

In 2011, the north almost stopped Goodluck Jonathan from contesting the presidential election after the death of Yaradua. They forced Jonathan to negotiate for one tenure before they could support him in 2011.

In 2015, the north came out smoking, claiming to have been shortchanged especially as they claimed that Jonathan was dishonoring the one term agreement entered into in 2011.

This caused Jonathan a second term and he lost at the poll.

It is unfortunate seeing some northern politicians declaring for president in 2023.

In 2007, Saraki’s father was among the northern elders that held Obasanjo on the neck until he changed his plan on Peter Odili and went for Yaradua.

Today, his son Bukola has declared his interest to rub the south their turn of producing the next president in 2023. I wouldn’t want to talk about Atiku Abubakar and his role in fighting for northern interests.

It is a pity that some northern politicians are too selfish. In 2015, Atiku, Saraki, Tambuwal etc decmaped to APC to deliver a northern candidate. They left APC because they knew that north can not retain power in APC after 8 years.

This is time for all southern leaders especially to come together and make a strong statement on 2023. This is our turn and no one should be allowed to take it away from us.

Anambra State 2021 Governorship Election Sets to be Nullified

The Anambra state November 6 governorship election petition tribunal was held in the early hours of today Saturday 15th, Jan, 2022, Chrysora Media reports.

The tribunal was relocated to Ilorin, the capital of Kwara state for some reason not yet known to Chrysora Media as well as the public.

Information from our correspondence in Ilorin, the venue of the tribunal hearing indicates that APGA has filed her responses.

But curiously, INEC is yet to obey the tribunal order granting access to APC and Andy Uba to inspect all the electoral materials used during the election.

We were also told that INEC has not issued Andy Uba with the CTC of the results as collated and announced on November 6 and 9, 2021.

The attitude of INEC should disturb every discerning mind. The electoral commission has continued to act in a manner which suggests that the election was never free, fair and credible.

So far, Andy Uba who is the major party in the tribunal has a case against APGA, Soludo and INEC.

It is not to be suprising if Andy Uba is declared winner or the November 6 governorship election is nuliffied. The court works with the evidence before it.

Soludo And Obiano Fight Intensifies As Obiano Sets To Release List Of Inauguration Committee

Because of the anger incurred as a result of the 80 man Transition Committee list set up by the Anambra State Gov-Elect, Prof Soludo, the outgoing government is set at any moment from now to release a list of members of the inauguration committee.

The list of the inauguration committee will be populated by his boys and trusted allies as a retaliation against the incoming administration.

Chrysora Media learnt from AIF Media that about 600 million naira has been budgeted for the inauguration and that the incoming administration sees such amount for only inauguration as ridiculous.

He, the incoming admin was said to have angrily told those close to him that he would prefer being sworn-in an office than wasting a whooping sum of 600 million naira on his inauguration.

In a related development, there are also disagreements on the collection of IGR. Chrysora Media also learnt from AIF Media that major IGR points are being contracted out by an administration that will leave office in less than two months without consulting the incoming.

The fight is becoming more intensified and obvious. We will keep waiting for the outcome as Chrysora Media is set to keep updating you.

Buni-led Panel To Meet On Tuesday Over APC Convention

The national caretaker committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will meet on Tuesday to discuss the convention of the party.

TheCable learnt that the decision of the caretaker committee to meet is coming on the heels of a meeting of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF).

“Following Sunday’s scheduled meeting of the Progressives Governors’ Forum, the party’s caretaker committee will meet on Tuesday, 18th January, 2022 on the convention,” a source said.

Last week, Simon Lalong, governor of Plateau state, said the exact date of the convention planned for February will be announced after a meeting of the APC governors on Sunday.

Buni-led Panel To Meet On Tuesday Over APC Convention

“By Sunday, we will tell you when we’re doing the convention. We have taken a date already,” Lalong had said.

“We said we are going to do a convention in February and we are still working for the convention. As far as I’m concerned, except things change from another angle, we’re working for our convention in February.”

However, no date was communicated after the meeting.

In November, Atiku Bagudu, chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF), said President Muhammadu Buhari endorsed February 2022 for the APC to hold its convention.

“So, the governors, based on all these, suggested that the party and the president should graciously consider February and the president is favourably disposed to the suggestion,” Bagudu had said at the time.
